I have two IBM2005-B16 Fabric License

I have two old IBM2005-B16 (i think it corresponds to 200E) with Fos 5.1.0. I need to connect these switches to two new switch IBM Blade Brocade 8gB. The output ov licenseshow of old IBM2005-B16 :

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Web license

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Zoning license

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Fabric license

The output of licenseshow of the new switches :

brocade8Gb_bay8:admin> licenseshow

xxxxxxxxxxxx

   Fabric license

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    Enhanced Group Management license

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

    8 Gig FC license

I must update FOS version to 6.2.x but before start I need to know if I can connect via ISL the switches in two fabric with the actual license.

My question is :Fabric License is the  same of Full Fabric License?

License output show OK.

BTW, and FYI at next time is not necessary to edited all the License Key with xxx, beause the LIC are unique and cannot be used to another switch.
